The Next Trend Designs Inc. Is One of the Best Places to Work: ASI

By Paul Fitzgerald The Toronto Tribune
Mississauga, Ontario (April 4, 2018)  

According to ASI (Adverting Specialty Institute) TNT is dynamite.

ASI and its leading industry magazine, The Counselor, just released its list of top industry workplaces in Canada and the United States this week and The Next Trend (TNT) Designs Inc. ranks 6th overall. Only 40 companies made the 2018 list.

ASI is the promotional product industry’s largest membership organization offering media, technology, marketing and education to help cultivate success and community comradery at the international level.

TNT is a dynamic and innovative company and ASI credits the owners for putting a strong emphasis on employee happiness. For TNT it’s a smart way of doing business.

“Without our team, we wouldn’t be who we are as a company,” explains Janine Taylor, the co-founder and co-owner of TNT, in an interview with The Counselor. Taylor co-founded the company 26 years ago with her partner, Rob Charlton. “As much as we try to give them, we get back ten-fold.”

TNT goes out of its way to make sure every employee feels appreciated and loved. The company hosts summer and holiday parties, and rewards both its top performers as well as accumulated years of loyalty, with gifts.  Parties are thrown for birthdays, going away and other events throughout the year.  TNT likes to do most life events with their team in style.

The Counselor also reports that TNT has cultivated a tight-knit culture and “offers compensation above the national average.”

A happy workplace generates better productivity, innovation and success, according to the company’s long list of employees. As a result, a happy workplace makes happy clients. TNT’s clients across North America applaud their diverse products and services and this is why they have a high rate of repeat clients and constant growth year after year. Just recently TNT made the PROFIT 500 list again, with a five-year revenue growth of 89 percent. PROFIT 500 is the definitive ranking of Canada’s Fastest Growing Companies.

“It’s great to be recognized by ASI; however, we would never be where we are today without our team of professionals,” says Charlton.

Taylor adds, “Since opening our doors for business in 1992, we always knew that happy employees would help create a successful company… And we were right. When you look after your team, they look after you. We have created a work environment that is positive, fun and ambitious. Looking after ‘our own’ is the reason why we are one of the best places to work in North America and we are elated to receive accolades from ASI.”

Many know that happiness is a great feeling. For Charlton and Taylor, it’s a way of life!

Sales People Wanted: Should I Stay Or Should I Go

It’s an exciting day in the promotional products business as I scour the many recruiting and job search websites to find a few good sales people. We are growing and we require more sales people to look after our growing client base. Does this sound like you?

I will begin by saying that the promo business is not for everyone and that really good sales people are hard to find. I am not sure whether it is because it is not that appealing to the average sales person or if it is because that good sales people don’t understand that they can make very good money in this industry and be able to sell something to any type of business out there. That to me, would be like getting the golden ticket from Willy Wonka. Sell some kind of promotional item to any business that I walked up to? Be able to put logo’s on hundreds of thousands of products and get paid to do it? Sign me up!! Well, I will say that we have hired two new sales reps in the last 6 months and they have proven to be great hires. Both have come from sales backgrounds but not from the promo business. There is a learning curve that takes time and many resources to get new people up to speed. We all know that. In this business of logo’d corporate items, there is much to understand and plenty to learn out of the gate. Good people pick it up right away. The biggest question is “how hungry are you”? As a good friend of mine once told me years ago, as a commissioned sales rep you wake up broke everyday no matter how much you made yesterday. This keeps you hungry and hunting.

In this promotional products industry, there are a lot of sales people out there that are not exactly enamored with their current place of employment but they are nervous to leave for fear of losing current clients. I get it! The way I look at it is if they have clients that they brought in, looked after and built a relationship with, why would they not follow their star sales rep? I would. Wouldn’t you? At The Next Trend Designs Inc, we offer a better than most profit sharing, excellent benefits program, marketing,  fantastic culture and working environment as well as lead generation. Most of our current sales team have been here for 15 +years and would have moved on if they did not thrive in this culture.

So, TNT is looking for a few good sales people and the call has gone out to those of you who are hungry, tired of your current situation, looking for a change, wanting to thrive in a new environment. Can you hear the bell? It’s ringing and success in on the other end. If it were me, I would pick it up and listen to what it had to say. That is my view!!
